Re: Am I getting myself in trouble ???
$1,200 Canadian. That's about $150 in real money, right? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
It would be pretty for a good, sound, pretty much rust-free Jeep. If there's serious rust damage or other mechanical problems it's probably high.
In the states I don't think you'd have a problem finding those parts. Tomorrow I can ask my parts house buddy about the brake parts.
The alternator is the kind of part that a Jeeper wouldn't worry about. If an exact replacement isn't available we would get another and adapt it - a pretty easy job in the overall scheme of things.
I think you're getting a pretty good feeling for what you're getting into. Best way to determine if the price is right it to look closely at a bunch of old CJs and see what they sell for.
